I *literally* cranked out a couple of sparkly bits the day it all arrived... Cece's own handmade lampwork was too much to resist! I put the glass together with findings and bead caps from the soup, and one of the gorgeous focals she sent....a lovely terra-cotta feather by Birgitta Lejonklou. (AngelWhisperer on Etsy). I'm definitely going to be adding more of her ceramic pieces to my work!
These two beauties are not only remaining in my personal collection, they've been worn almost daily since I made them!
But wait.... there's MORE.
With some of the bits and bobs and oddments, I put together a few pair of earrings. The dragonfly wings captivated me, and I think that I'll be restocking them when I finally run out!
Thanks again Cece!
You should definitely pop over to The Beading Yogini and have a look at what Cece did with the soup I sent her...I'm blown away!
